Tillie Walden: Talking Comics
"If it was torture, I’d’ve given up by now.”
DAILY Arts  November 1, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...And after doing that workshop with Scott, it was as simple as that: I knew that graphic novels were what I wanted to do. It was like two days where all we did was think about comics, talk about comics, draw comics – and it clicked with me so easily that I felt kind of silly..."

The Comics (Artist) Panel

Arts Story  December 22, 2006, by Joey Seiler

Professor Marston and the Wonder Women
The origins of the iconic Amazon princess
Film Review  October 13, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...William Moulton Marston, a psychologist who had his own free-wheeling and avowedly feminist attitudes that came together on the only-a-dime, four-color, pulp pages, but whose forward-thinking notions about the modern American woman eventually ran head on into establishment accusations of perversion, kink, and BDSM-lite from the Child Study Association of America in 1945. (A real-life shot across the bow of the comics industry presaging the infamous 1954 Senate Subcommittee on Juvenile Delinquency that took down William Gaines from legendary E.C..."

A Guide to Austin Stand-Up: Comics
The stand-up people behind the city's comedy scene
Arts Story  March 30, 2017, by Wayne Alan Brenner, Ashley Moreno, Sean L. Malin and Robert Faires
"...Her deadpan style and dark material – shaped in large part by her experiences growing up in very provincial, small-town East Texas – have earned Bixby the title "Comedy's Sweetheart of Darkness." It's a nickname that captures the appeal in her particular sort of pessimism and woe; at the mic, she doesn't throw a pity party so much as lay out the hard hand life has dealt her and mock each card. Her endurance on the scene and popularity at festivals (Fun Fun Fun Fest, Moontower Comedy, and Boston's Women in Comedy Fest) are proof that good comics can work black as well as blue..."

Is the world's first live action graphic novel a good graphic novel?
DAILY Books  August 11, 2012, by Richard Whittaker

Newer fans will find a simple, old-fashioned action romp (no women in refrigerators here.) If you love finding a reproduction wind-up tin rocket ship, then this is a page-turner...."

Funniest Person in Austin 2016: Lashonda Rules!
Lashonda Lester takes the title in the competition's 31st year
DAILY Arts  May 17, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...Suffice to say that she earned her crown last night and shattered whatever glass ceiling has hung over the FPIA since 2000, when marvelous Martha Kelly was the last woman to take the title. And Lester's win was not only a welcome affirmation for female comics in the ATX but African-American stand-ups, too..."

Texas in Bold, Dark Strokes
Artist/Historian Jack Jackson
Books Story  November 15, 1996, by Jesse Sublett
